LINCOLNTON, N.C. – A Denver teen has been arrested on outstanding armed robbery charges from Mecklenburg County and an overnight robbery of a convenience store in Denver.

Deputies were dispatched to the Seven-Eleven store on Atwater Drive, Denver around 3 a.m. today (December 28, 2021) in reference to an armed robbery. The clerks on duty told officers a lone gunman entered the store wearing all black clothing and brandishing a gun.

The white male demanded money from the cash register and instructed the clerk to put it in a grocery bag. The man left the store, ran across a parking lot and fled in a vehicle described as a silver in color passenger car.

Around 6:30 a.m. CMPD officers requested assistance in serving three outstanding warrants on a suspect who lives in Lincoln County. Lincoln County Sheriff’s deputies and CMPD officers went to the Kenyon Drive, Denver, NC residence where the suspect was staying. Officers arrested Abdel Karim Lagueb, 18, on three outstanding warrants for robbery with a dangerous weapon at convenience stores in Charlotte. He is being held in the Mecklenburg County Detention Center under a $75,000 secured bond.

During the CMPD interview with Lagueb, he confessed to the robbery at the Seven-Eleven store in Denver. Lagueb will be charged with common law robbery in the Lincoln County incident.
